Wakkerstroom Music Festival celebrates classical music and art (2017)

The hills will come alive with classical music for the eighth consecutive year in the picturesque town of Wakkerstroom over the long weekend of 17-21 March 2017. The Wakkerstroom Music Festival is a non-profit organisation which aims to mainly raise funds that will enable promising music students to further their studies.

Usually a place of birdsong, quiet and solitude for visitors who come to this internationally renowned wetland birding centre to “twitch”, the festival has become well known in the classical music world, and has become the highlight of the social and cultural life of the village, and a draw card for the many visitors who attend annually.

The detailed program of recitals and further details of the festival and accommodation options will be available on the websites www.wmfestival.co.za or www.wakkerstroom.co.za from 20 February 2017.  Inquiries info@wmfestival.co.za
